Direction 13 of the Registration Act

Type of Text:Implementing Rules/Regulations
Subject Matter:Trademarks
Directive 13 of the Regiِstration Act provides for the registration of Trademarks under section 18 (f) of the Registration Act.

Under Direction 13, a trademark is registered by means of a declaration of ownership a solemn statement of facts made by the declarant and usually attested by a notary public, a magistrate or a judicial officer. Although registration of a trademark is not considered conclusive proof of ownership, it is likely to be taken as prima facie evidence of ownership. The ability to produce a registration document will certainly help in criminal or civil court proceedings.
